Okay so by my own admission, I will admit that our daughter has an obscene amount of clothing! Like kind of out of control. In my defense, everything is so flipping cute!!!
This weekend I decided to tackle the massive amount of clothing that had “accumulated” in her closet… Just so happens that she has the only walk in closet in our house on the smallest bedroom, weird design feature?
Anyways, in my most frantic moments while the tot has been napping or during the ten minutes I had to file through her clothes while she proceeded to pull everything out of her drawers, I was able to toss the clothes that no longer fit into the corner, close the door and forget about them! Yay for procrastination!!!
However, the time had finally come to address the pile. Much to my dismay, I also managed to mix all of the sizes together…
While it was a fun trip down memory lane looking at all those adorable outfits (especially the newborn ones *swoon*) it was a daunting task to say the least. But at the end of the day, it’s done, hallelujah!
To make the clothing more manageable I used
Ziploc Vacuum Storage Bags.
These things are an absolute godsend – took sheer chaos and turned it into an organized stack for future use, man do I hope that if we have another baby it’s a girl…but in the meantime, I’m just glad to have our closet back!!!
IMPORTANT TIP: Make sure you FOLD the clothes prior to using the vacuum function, I was overly excited and overestimated the bags abilities, if you don’t fold it won’t get much smaller – so if you hate folding clothes, I’m sorry in advance!!!
